One of the best things about visiting Cumberland Valley is strolling through our charming downtowns and wandering into our storefronts, where you are greeted by friendly and welcoming owners and their staff. Since the shutdown, Cumberland Valley’s shop owners sure do miss seeing the smiling faces of their customers. Until everyone can meet again, you can continue to support these local businesses by shopping their online stores, where you will find chocolate, clothing, home décor, jewelry, books, garden supplies, and more.

Here are some Mechanicsburg locations. Future posts will highlight stores in Camp Hill, the West Shore, and more. Click here for a list of stores in Carlisle.
